About Martin Halla

We are striving to provide the best experience to our guests through providing clean, upgraded house and offering more and more amenities. The guests' satisfaction is very important to us. We want our guests to feel like home.

Martin Halla purchased this house in 2009

Why Martin Halla chose Poconos

Poconos is an excellent area that provides all year round activities Our location is in safe gated private community on top of the Pocono Plateau and only 15 minutes from the Hickory State Park that offers many trails to hikers. Famous Hawk Falls are within 10 minute short drive.. We are also very close to the Lehigh River which offers damn release white water rafting. Delaware river canoeing is only 25 minutes away

What makes this house unique

I really enjoy the position of the house in the mature forest. You feel truly connected to the nature through the flora and wild life that is very common in the forest (Deer, turkeys, squirrels ). We are only short 3 minute walking distance from the indian lake which provides great 2 mile loop for joggers or walkers. At the winter I enjoy the wood burning stove that provides cozy heat . With a g lass of wine at our new kitchen and high speed Internet, I cannot ask for more. I also enjoy the gated community's safety. One does not have to worry about any by-passers as only residents authorized visitors are allowed to the community.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time here. The hot tub was so fun! At night we went out and the moon was really bright and the sky was so clear.The kitchen was fully equipped and everything looked new and clean. I could live in this house and be happy- it was that perfect! House was so private which was nice.

Also, we heard lots of birds singing from the deck. We hope to come back again soon!

Owner's Response: Rafal, we are glad you had a great time ! The house is surrounded by vacant wooded lots offering a complete privacy and true connection to the nature. Deer pass on daily basis and it is not uncommon to see wild turkeys as well. This summer, we are adding a patio and outdoor fireplace to enjoy more outdoor living and Poconos beautiful evenings.

Secluded and beatutiful home with many amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Martin's house. te house was very comfortable for 6 adults to relax, so some grilling, use the hot tub & fire pit. It has all the great amenities of a full-time home. The beds were comfortable. As a host, Martin reached out many times during our stay to make sure everything was going well. The area is really private and beautiful. There are many things to do in nearby area like hiking, biking , zip lines and canoeing. I’d stay with Martin again and will definitely be back to the Poconos area. Definitely recommend.

The bathroom for good reason was left off the pictures

  • 3 of 5

We rented this house in August for 3 nights, but really only stayed 2. We do have a lot of criticism - however, none towards the owner. I know they had a septic issue very recent before our stay- so I'm sure that was not 100 percent when we were there. I know the owner had said to text with any concerns, and we did ask for how to access the boats... but with our cons list - it would have been an issue and nothing that could be addressed easily for either party.

Pros-

Plenty of space

Guest house was very nice

Sauna (but this wasn't working)

Hot tub (although in the pictures there was a lock, which wasn't there)

Fire pit - very nice, extremely relaxing. Well worth the trip to me.

Space out back with daily deer so up close, gave you that nature feel. Peaceful and quiet.

Easy of booking and friendliness of host

The amenities were plentiful and public areas were were well kept. Lots to enjoy

Cons

Back yard had foul "septic" Smell

Was very muddy with septic contents . We had a 4 1/2 year old and 1 1/2 year old who ran across the back yard - feces soaked through their shoes for which after attempting to clean we ultimately threw out. So we could only use the left side of yard where fire pit was.

Mouse droppings everywhere - we took everything off the counters and placed in fridge, what couldn't be we had a big Tupperware container for , then proceeded to scrub counters clean with Clorox , found a multitude of dropping the next day. Threw out most of what we brought up. We had originally planned on cooking each day, but with the smell coming from the sink and the mouse droppings we opted to eat out.

Upon returning home there were piles of droppings, and just threw out any food we brought home

Sink had foul smell

The bathroom was absolutely disgusting. There were bugs crawling through tub and in toilet. Tub was dented in multiple spots and yellow with stains. Stains in toilet bowl as well. We went to a waterpark and just brought clothes and soap to

Shower there.

I am well aware we could have contacted the owner, but just kept thinking it was nothing that could in reality be fixed immediately. I just didn't feel comfortable and clean, and we decided to leave a day early.

Owner's Response: After reading this review I was extremely concerned about the quality of service we offer to our guests. How could it be that after building a brand new septic in 07.18.17 which passed township and county inspection, it could still leak "feces" into yard where little kids would be running in them? To get the answer I called the septic company which performed a pressure test and they found nothing wrong with the system. It appears that new top soil formed a mud in some areas and it was easy to be mistaken with something else. I can assure my past and future guests that we have no septic problems at all. The mentioned yard smell was coming from a leaking grill gas bottle. Regarding the mice and bugs: We are located in the middle of woods and if you have your doors and windows open at some point, there will always be presence of those. Nevertheless, on Thursday 08.17.17 we called exterminating company at 11 AM and by 3 PM we had the entire house including basement taken care of. Your assumption not to mention this to us "because it would not be resolved immediately" was wrong, violation of our contract (guests are supposed to report issues with the house to us immediately) and disrespectful to future guests. Fortunately it was taken care of before the next guests arrived on Friday. We are currently on schedule wi the company to avoid future issues. Bathroom pictures are present and you can be the judge. The house is professionally cleaned after each rental. Water in the house is rich on iron, which may make yellow stains in the toilet, after a few days. Especially before the arrival of the next guests. This is why we place the paper strip with words "sanitized: over the toilet. Sauna works: the panel buttons have worn out a bit and we are shopping for a new panel. (Unfortunately the original maker went out of business). However, the panel is still usable. I provide my phone number in case my guests need anything. I answer all the time. I wish I received the call from you during your stay instead of learning about issues from this review. I truly care about our guests and I take every negative review seriously. I will do my best to have none in the future. Thank you, Martin Halla

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We were little bit hesitant to go on the vacation after reading the recent reviews about the septic issues. I called the owner on the day of arrival with my concerns. Martin assured me the new septic was in place and was very understanding about my cancellation plans. We decided to go anyway. Upon arrival, we saw new backyard with grass starting to show. To our surprise, we were welcomed by 5 deers on the property. Our five year old never seen deer from so close. Yard has flat grass to play - to the enjoyment of our dog. Martin offers canoe for nearby lake. There is fire pit for evening hanging out. What is also really nice about this house that the owner has everything you need in the house. I have rented other houses and I always try to remember to bring everything I need. Of course, I always forget something. If you want to get away from it all, this house will be your perfect escape.
